A man jumped off the Coronado Bridge Saturday and was killed, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A man in a white pickup truck pulled to the right shoulder of the bridge’s midspan area at 7:10 a.m., a CHP incident log reported. He climbed up on the eastbound state Route 75 right shoulder wall and apparently jumped in the water to his death.

Harbor Police were called to the scene to retrieve the body and the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office was also called, the CHP said.

The victim’s vehicle was moved off the bridge and traffic resumed. His name was not released pending notification of next of kin.

No further details were immediately available.
